NEW HAMPSHIRE LAWMAKERS MAY RECONSIDER ABORTION VOTE

    CONCORD (CWNews.com) - The New Hampshire House of Representatives may reconsider its vote against a ban on partial-birth abortions after one legislator said he was tricked into voting against it.

    Rep. Peter Leonard, D-Manchester, who said he is pro-life, said he had initially voted for the bill banning the procedure, but was misled by some colleagues into believing he had voted against it. Leonard said he then mistakenly changed his vote to stop the ban.

    In addition, Rep. Roland Turgeon, another Manchester Democrat, said he also mistakenly voted against the ban. Supporters noted that more than three dozen House members did not vote on the ban, leading them believe that a re-vote will result in passing the measure.

    On the same days as the original vote, the House also rejected a bill which would have required the notification of a parent or guardian, if an underage girl wants an abortion.
